Rod Stewart became a joke, but when he played with The Faces at the beginning of the '70s he was brilliant. I lived in London then, but was only 13 and my mum and dad wouldn't have let me out at night - how I wish I could've seen The Faces live!

I have to agree w/ WILLco on this one. Rod Stewarts' early career was brilliant. I did see him w/ Jeff Beck at the Fillmore East and they were great. I think you have to admit ther'es only a hand full of male rock lead singers at that time.A quick list of English singers would read like this ,Robert Plant, Rodger Daltry,Rod Stewart,Mick Jagger, Stev Winwood ,Van Morrison and later Peter Framton.In the U.S. we have Jesse Colin Young, Marty Balin,Richie Furay,Richard Manuel,Jim Morrison and maybe Paul Simon but the rock lead singer title might not fit. These are not in order of significance or importanace I just did a quick list from memory.Iknow I've missed some but the rap was about Rod Stewart anyway.

Is that Ronnie Wood sporting an Ampeg Dan Armstrong?

I concur regarding The Faces, and the horrible-ness of 80's Rod Stewart.

Here's a classic video of the over played Maggie Mae where they turn the stage into a football pitch.
